An ALA Notable Book

A New York Times Outstanding Book of the Year

A National Book Award Finalist

"A must!" declared School Library Journal of this ALA Notable Book and National Book Award Finalist, now available in a glorious new hardcover edition. Blending fantasy and reality in a big-city setting, three unforgettable and wonderfully illustrated tales recount the adventures of Mitzi and her little brother as they attempt to visit their grandparents, recuperate from colds, and meet the president.

My Thoughts

This book was first introduced in the late 70's.  This book contains three stories or 'Mitzis', the name of the little girl who acts as the star of each.  The stories are childlike depictions and were a favorite of many kids.

I remember liking the one where everyone gets sick, and thinking it was odd to hear about Mitzi and her younger brother taking a taxi without their parents along, which was often read as a, 'what not to do story'. 

Mitzi is an intelligent young girl who is always on the look-out for a new adventure, and children still enjoy these stories.
